Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including Hale, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Arcola - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Arcola) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Arcola. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from ArcolaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Arcola. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.5599, Longitude: -87.7683    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<6>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
